Hi, I am a newbie to photoshop and I was looking at a video tutorial that covers making a multicolored sunburst background. In this video, the person is using the command+option+shift+t shortcut to quickly replicate the rays and in the video when she uses it, this command creates new layers automatically. However, when I tried this shortcut it just creates copies of the rays with the correct transformation on the same layer. I was wondering how I could edit the command so that it creates a new layer automatically every time I use it on my mac?
Could you please post screenshots with the pertinent Panels (Toolbar, Layers, Options Bar, …) visible?
Did you transform the first copy before applying Transform Again (+ shift)?
Hi, thank you for the quick reply! Here is the screenshot and a link to the youtube video that I followed if needed.
No Layer is selected so what did you do after duplicating the Shape Layer and transforming it?
Here is another screenshot as I am working on it right now and now the command+shift+option+t does not work at all.
Please start over:
• Duplicate the Shape Layer (cmd-J)
• Transform the new Shape Layer (Cmd-T)
• apply Edit > Transform > Again with the shift-key pressed
And the post a screenshot with the History Panel visible.
Here is the screenshot with the history panel visible:
and the screenshot of the history panel after trying the steps you suggested:
I got the shortcut to work again in a new project but it keeps adding the copies to the same layer.
You apparently transformed the Path instead of the Layer – in my screenshot it is »Free Transform«, in yours »Transform Path«.
Yes, you are right! I could not find the free transform under edit as I only have the following options which are all related to path. Where could I find free transform in this version of photoshop?
Try switching to the Move Tool again.
I tried your suggestion and it worked great! Thank you for helping me! 🙂
